Florence at the Dawn of the Renaissance: Painting and Illumination, 1300-1350

J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center

Nov 13, 2012 — Feb 10, 2013

This major international loan exhibition takes a new look at the origins of the Renaissance in Italy, revealing how Florentine panel painters and manuscript illuminators of the early 1300s revolutionized the depiction of the human form, laying the foundation for the work of Michelangelo and Leonardo that would come a century later.

The exhibition incorporates new findings about artistic techniques and artists’ workshops based on conservation research and scientific analysis. It reveals a more complex and nuanced picture of the beauty and creativity of artistic production in Florence at the dawn of the Renaissance.

The exhibition features more than 90 works of art, including paintings, illuminated manuscripts, and stained glass by the most prominent Florentine artists of this era, including the largest grouping of paintings by the Florentine master Giotto di Bondone ever exhibited in North America.
